One absolute requirement here is to assess all outstanding bug reports
requests in SF, and deal with them one way or another. If, for example,
going to raise issues about <choice>, that needs a quick agreement.
With my I18N hat on, there are now five groups translating
descriptions of specs with a delivery date of the autumn
at latest. I am taking it on trust therefore that the specs _are_
frozen to all intents and purposes.
The PERS activity will likely need some Specs adding. and dictionaries

I (think) we agreed it was unworkable and not probably needed. The immediate
requirement was met by the new model class facility to allow sequences
as well as alternations. I think we should let this one die a natural death

agreed. someone has to drive this in a pretty strict way.

I did wonder about running trac (http://trac.edgewall.org/) as an aide.

what about them? support for them is implemented, but
I the reaction I got a few weeks ago seemed to
be against it. As I said then, I'd much rather implement
a div0/div/div1 thing using Schematron if we
accept its serious use

In my opinion, we have no resources to
deal with this. I think its a distraction this year.

If you accept my model class reimplementation of <body>,
can we just agree to abide by the results of James and Ariana's
surveymonkey, and simply implement what they find out.
